VINTAGE V4 TONY BUTLER LIVE SIGNATURE BASS
  • VINTAGE V4 TONY BUTLER LIVE SIGNATURE BASS

    SKU: V4MTB

    The Vintage V4MTB ‘Tony Butler Signature’ ICON bass replicates the beautiful, worn-in look and feel of an instrument that exhibits a lifetime's worth of woodshedding, rehearsing and performing, straight out of the box. Good things come to those who wait – but who has the time for that?

    Designed in conjunction with former Big Country bassist Tony Butler, the Vintage V4MTB features a single Wilkinson WBBCCR pickup, compensated brass saddle bridge and improved upper fret access, bringing together the best of modern and traditional aesthetics and features.

    “For any bass player to own a quality instrument from the word go is inspiring,” says Tony. “After trying it out during a Big Country rehearsal I quickly decided that the V4MTB would tour with me. To have a signature model made to my live bass spec is an honour!”

    A Vintage ICON Series Bass already looks like your lifetime companion; the best part is your journey is just beginning. Play on.
